My father died last weekend; his funeral was yesterday. I've been very distracted and have not been reading the LUG. I might choose not to go back and read a week's worth of LUG unless there's some tempest-in-a-Nikor that I need to know about. Yes, I had my Leica in the room when he died. No, I haven't developed the film yet. I exposed Tri-X at 800 and I've never done push processing before; I'm going to do some reading before I pour any chemicals. ICUs are dark places. I'm going to write a message about the actual photography in a while. I must confess that while I was taking pictures, I kept remembering Tina Manley saying that she liked to use Leicas because they can take pictures in the dark. I think the LUG archive search engine is broken; it seems to be returning only matches from Volume 19. Damn. It takes about 30 hours of computer time to regenerate the index. Maybe after I recover from this trip I can figure out what's wrong without having to rebuild the whole search index.
